What you'll learn in this film production class:

Steadicam® is now a commonly used tool within the film and television industry, however it requires training and practice in order to produce good results. More than just a stabilizer, as a shooting system it is able to provide an individual style to the production often greatly desired by producers and directors. Additionally, complex moving scenes can not only be quicker to shoot, but also more dramatic by adding pace and dimension to the shot.

The Tiffen Steadicam Silver Workshop is a unique opportunity for working camera operators to learn the use and application of Steadicam within the film and television world. The workshop is very much hands-on with plenty of practical time actually wearing and using the system.

Training Approach

The course approach is a combination of hands-on and instructor driven, however always kept very practical and relevant.

*In order to maintain the group flow of training and instruction, students and instructors eat lunch together each day. The cost of lunch is included in the cost of the workshop.
